There are many reasons why a driver might need to request dash cam footage, including:
To prove fault in a car accident. If you’re involved in a collision and believe that the other party was at fault, you can ask for dash cam footage to help with your claim.
To support a police investigation. If you’ve been pulled over by an officer, they may ask you for your license and registration as well as for permission to access your vehicle’s dash cam footage. If this happens, it is best to comply with their request so that they can properly investigate the situation.
To clear yourself of wrongdoing in an event where you were accused of a crime or traffic violation. Just because someone makes an accusation doesn’t mean that it is true or accurate — and sometimes they just want attention or money from you. The best way to get out of this situation is by requesting access to your dash cam footage so that you can prove your innocence!
